areas of heat loss
Explanation:
I don't agree with Nia.

"Wärmebrücke" in German means:
part of a structure that lets heat pass easily, due to a low k-factor.

heat bridge or heat channel is a device that is meant to let heat pass, e.g. to dissipate excess heat, like carbon heat bridges

Thanks. I used this definition exactly in my translation. When I looked a second time, I discovered that I was supposed to be translating Wärmebrückenberechnungen, and "calculation of areas of heat loss" seemed to fit well.
